    Fiebing's Mink Oil Paste on jacekts?

    By all means avoid mink oil. It's really awful stuff. I just scored an old leather valise that I will use as a camera case. The leather is in good shape but somewhat dry, so Pecard's is what I will use on it.

    What Does The FL Think of So-called Black Friday?

    Well, I survived the day, in spite of my dread. :D Even though I work in a retail establishment, we thankfully don't have any of those bogus "Doorbuster" gimmicks that other places use to fuel the insanity. I drove by several places though that I'm sure were suffering from the onslaught of greed...

    What Was The Last Movie You Watched?

    "The Civil War", the series by Ken Burns. Quite a bit more interesting than the glossing over of the war received in 8th grade history class. I never knew just how close the north came to losing that war on a number of occasions despite their overwhelming manufacturing capacity.

    Of Sheep-Dip, Rot-Gut, and Furniture Polish. The worst of the worst.

    Brought to you by the same folks that make Janitor in a Drum. :) And did you actually try Cynar James?? I've seen it in Italian delis, but could never muster the courage to plunk down 20 bucks for a bottle of something so suspicious. And who in their right mind would think to make alcohol from...

    Guessing a hat size if someone only knows the inside diameter?

    Here is one of many size charts that will give you a general idea. http://villagehatshop.com/content/38/how-to-determine-your-hat-size.html To be more accurate, measure your own head with a tape measure just above your ears where your hat should rest, and compare to the given measurements for a...

    my new jacket reeks of linseed oil.

    Linseed oil is used in painting because it is a "drying" oil. The "drying" though is actually oxidation. They found out early on that canvas especially, as well as other natural materials would first have to be sized with a protective layer to isolate the support material from the effects of the...

    Brad Pitt's WWII Tank movie, "FURY"

    Sounds like a must see movie. Our tanks were woefully inadequate at the beginning of the European campaign though compared to German armor. http://wn.com/sherman_tank

    What's something modern you won't miss when it becomes obsolete?

    Yeah, won't go away soon enough,...along with the rest of popular "culture". All those ridiculous fashions and trends that assail my eyes every day. Sadly, original thoughts, ideas, and styles seem to be obsolete. Hopefully real style will someday be revived.

    Adult Boys

    This calls to mind the old axiom, "History always repeats itself." Sadly enough, it's true because so many people simply ignore history and the utter failures which certain courses of action have resulted in,..time and time again. One need only look at the history of The Roman Empire for...

    When wearing shorts become acceptable for grown men?

    I'm with you on that. Shorts are for kids, or frat boys, along with the backwards baseball cap. The tragically eternally young crowd also,...older men in the shorts and tee shirt uniform just look rather silly. My dad was from the era of shorts for kids, and it came down to me too I think. My...
